Difficult topic, so how about if everybody just avoids having children for wee bit?

Yeah, that would be nice, until we get to 4-5 billion again which is the only sustainable level if everyone is to be in the middle class.

Otherwise it would be completely impossible, which means constant strife, instability and faking outrage over poverty and hunger.

At various times I've tried to find on the internet an estimate of a global sustainable population with first wold living standards. It is usually lower than 4-5 billion. Just wondering where you got that figure from ?
